sports and all society have to reckon with at some point is the fact that the technology and science are going to raise these questions over and over again as we go forward. because it's not totally clear where you start -- where you draw the lines. right now we think tommy johns surgery is okay, even though you come back with a stronger arm than you had before. that's a medical enhancement. that's not something that's part of your natural gift. that's something that you earned. at some point we'll have laser surgery that will allow them to see better. is that a drug? is that something you should be allowed to have or not? people will be able to do things scientifically, technologically to their bodies to make them better performers without any effort. so where do the lines get drawn? how do we figure out how to cope with the march of science? >> like a futurologist. >> last month bartolo colon, came back from a 93 miles an hour. >> that's okay but hgh isn't. again, where do the lines get drawn? >> the reason i'm here today is because i had my blood spun last night. >> juicing. >> i'

science abstract, they say that not only does it affect psychological development in young -- not only young males but also young women, but there are physiological changes in the way the body responds to arousal regarding violence. i mean, you look at this study and look at other studies, it's all out there. and it's obvious. and i think the denial of this from people on the left i think hurts their cause. >> yeah. >> like we've said from the very beginning, this is a very big all-encompassing problem that we have to face together. it's not left and right. >> not a denial. as a guy who has a business background who wants to solve a problem, the more you focus on video games, the more you let the nra off the hook to solve this problem, you get the guns. i hate those video games. i'm not saying it's an either/or, but sometimes it is an either/or. that's the solution. >> donny, i don't want to let people like quentin tarantino off the hook. i don't want to let people like your friends at activision off the hook. people that make billions of dollars selling mind-numbing violence -- >> i h

things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. the only way we will be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says this time must be different. that this time we must do something to protect our communities and our kids. weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in a movie theater. a majority of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment, who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them -- this is ronald reagan speaking -- urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> all right. welcome back to "morning joe." a live look at the whit

may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it! >> all right. so, for david maraniss, for some inside the echo chamber, there might have been some concern that there wasn't enough reaching out by the president to republicans on spending, on fiscal issues. but isn't this speech, the second inaugural, more to lay down markers for even generations to come, and then we have the state of the union, where perhaps he can address some of the short, and i mean, in the grand scheme of things, the short-term issues that our country faces. >> i think that's true. and i also think that this speech was ideological, but he's a pragmatic president. and so i think that not everything that he said in the speech -- you know, he said that it's going to be imperfect. the solutions will be imperfect. he's not going to try to please every constituency.

. we'll restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's use and lower its cost. >> here we are four years later. why not come back to the dubliner? all you did too. my, lord. the line goes around the block. a wonderful, joyful crowd. thank you all for coming. joining us now with the politico playbook, the politico executive director jim. >> i'm always a dose of sunshine in the morning. you guys were talking about ted cruz and his comments on gun control. i think what people need to realize, ted cruz is a mainstream republican with this senate and this house. his views, he's not on the conserveative edge of the party. that is the party. when you think about the budget, think about gun control -- >> saying the president exploited the death of 6 and 7-year-olds within minutes? >> i think a lot of republicans wouldn't say it like that but they'd say something similar. >> he's on "meet the press" for his first time. this is his introduction. he makes a political attack that you would expect in a campaign for dogcatcher in the b
